Sydney Spies in rejected photo
(Durango, Colorado) An 18-year-old student at Durango High School, Sydney Spies, is protesting the administration's decision to eliminate her senior photo from the school yearbook.
“I feel like they aren’t allowing me to have my freedom of expression,” said Spies, 18. “I think the administration is wrong in this situation, and I don’t want this to happen to other people.”Looks okay to me. Her outfit is not too different from a typical cheerleader uniform which one sees in every yearbook.
Spies argued that until the school creates a formal policy about yearbook photos, it can’t tell her not to use her picture.
